11-24-09 Aberdeen Marina, Aberdeen MS II

[Rick] We did not do much today except chill out.

Having said this, I will digress to a geography lesson. Grand Harbor, the marina where we stayed last week sits in an interesting place. It sits at the confluence of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama. The waters around Grand Harbor are the Tennessee River and the Tombigbee Waterway. The actual marina sits in Mississippi. If you leave the property and turn right, you will be in Alabama. If you go to the left, you will go into Tennessee in about 1 mile. Because of this, boaters in these waters are rarely sure in what state they are actually motoring. In fact, they go from state to state and back again without even knowing it. The lettering indicating the home port on the back of this boat says it all.

Tomorrow, more miles and more locks…….
